This is the case for all Mesa/Gallium drivers, if you define "full
driver team" by the standards of ATI and nVidia Windows driver teams.

Hence, something that helps in that case is very much welcome.

I'm not sure however how reading some binary bytecode could be more
difficult than writing a full lexer+parser+IR definition, and surely
incredibly reduces the existance of corner cases.
